You have summarized my personal thoughts on Gaetano Pesce who is (imho) severely underrated. I think part of the problem is because of his sculptural process and materials, he is straddling the line between art and design so much so that he cannot properly get recognized in either industry and his past work had been overshadowed by other "superstar" designers and specific design "moments". He doesn't fit into any particular genre, so it's hard to classify him. Neither industry wants him and nobody really gave him proper recognition, and thus his work is still undervalued (not just financially).
